We present 2-D mapping and analysis of the gaseous kinematics of the inner 7″ × 5″ of one of nearest (z = 0.0414) and brightest post-starburst quasars (PSQ) by using spectra obtained with the Integral Field Unit (IFU) of the Gemini Multi-Object Spectrograph on the Gemini North Telescope (Allington-Smith et al. 2002). Such quasars are broad-lined AGNs that also show the Balmer jumps and the high-order Balmer absorption lines from A stars typical of massive post-starburst populations of a few hundred Myrs (Brotherton et al. 2007). From measurements of the emission-line profiles, we constructed two-dimensional maps for the flux distributions, line ratios, radial velocities and gas velocity dispersions for the Hβ and [Oiii] emitting gas, similar to those of previous studies by our group (e.g., Barbosa et al. 2009).
